In this thread you can post your requests for Lenovo ThinkPad X240.

If someone wants upgrade Wi-Fi card and remove whitelist, or unlock hidden advanced menus and settings in bios setup menu, or upgrade to new display (and don't lost a brightness control), then you can post your request in this thread.

Important!

For creating your personal bios dump and to flash your bios mod, you must use any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip!

 

Just dump your Bios using any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip, then post it in this thread or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.

Okay, so at least we don't need a SPI programmer to dump the bios, I used Universal Bios backup ;)

And I'm sorry, I don't ask you but did you remove the whitelist ?

Thanks a lot

No. Dump created with hardware SPI programmer is very different than your dump created with Universal Bios backup tool. If you will try to flash (with SPI programmer) your dump which created with Universal Bios backup tool, then laptop can't start!

hi Guys

I need to unlock a supervisor password on a Lenovo x240. After reading about on the net I decided to take up the advice and buy myself a SPI Programmer.  When it comes I will see if I can get my head around it. What's the process then once I have the BIOS dump?

Thanks

Turbo

Hello,

 

I have an x240 and I would like to unlock the whitelist. I read this thread but it is still not clear for me the procedure.

Is there one universal mod bios which can me dump in the bios ship or is it necessary to do a copy of the existing bios, and send it on this forum to be modified?

Sorry for my newby question.

Best regards,

Hi!

Each bios mod prepared personally and based on your personal bios dump which contain your personal data like Serial numbers, UUID, Service TAG, MAC addresses, Windows keys, NVRAM settings, etc.

For creating your personal bios dump and to flash bios mod, you need use any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip!

Just dump your Bios (from your laptop) using any SPI programmer  (like CH341A programmer) and a SOIC8/SOP8 test clip, then post it in this thread or upload it to any fileserver and send me the link.

      Hi,
       
      So I've landed here to get some help with unlocking my old laptop. I must confess I've done few mods before, but it was on PCs, so was a piece of cake - adding Xeon to supported CPU models, or updating OROM to get a system boot from RAID SSDs. But now I'm trying do "the same" with laptop first time and this is a nightmare, mostly due to multiple BIOS vendors/methods, each of which requires own tools, some works with older revisions, some don't, some require 32-bits, some don't, and all YT examples being done using various configs = so in the end: a mayhem.
       
      My laptop config is:
      Lenovo B570e, i5-2520M, 10GB RAM
      BIOS: 44CN43WW (latest, unmodified), SMBIOS 2.6
      Phoenix/EFI SLIC Mod indicates it is an EFI/Insyde BIOS, but entering the BIOS I've got "Phoenix SecureCore Tiano" info
      WLAN: original damaged, a replacement (by chip) doesn't allow laptop to start - Error 104 Unsupported wireless network device...
       
      All I've found so far was:
      * Universal BIOS Backup Toolkit 2.0 - to make a BIOS dump file (succees)
      * UEFI Tool - to load dump file, search required module and extract it (success)
      * WinHex - to search an assembler code boundaries, and extract it (WinHex will not save edits = unregistered version), so semi-success
      * Hex Editor Neo - to disassembly code, and probably make changes (so far: in progress:))
       
      And I've stopped at searching the JZ/JNZ mnemonics, probably this is because I've got wrong code boundary (from WinHex), which gives improper disassembled program in preview pane. What I'm looking for is a loop, which I try to obey - regarding to some "popular" links describing this method (unfortunately I can't follow these instructions 1:1 as some programs don't work as supposed and crash - like WinHex, yup, some don't work at all and I need to use different tool).
      One more frustrating thing is I can't find proper tool for final stage - which is good (working) flasher. I can't remember how I've reflashed BIOS previously - must have been years ago - but now PhoenixUEFIWinFlash makes a BSOD (original, executable BIOS downloaded from Lenovo support website uses this program, which shows its GUI for a moment and makes BSOD), and "external", latest Phoenix UEFI WinFlash program doesn't want to work properly at setting up stage. Probably I will have to use phlash16 and FreeDOS, but will see at the end, when I have modded BIOS completed.
       
      Any suggestions (or even better - some ready, modded file), please ?
       
      Thanks in advance for any help, I appreciate any clue.

      Hello guys 
       
      I've got a pretty weird problem with my M18x R2. I already searched the web but couldn't find an answer. A few days ago I changed some settings in the bios, if I remember correctly DMVT Pre-Allocated.
      After saving this setting the notebook refuses to even POST. I get no beep errors or anything. If I press the power button the system turns on, the leds turn on and then the system shuts itself off. I already reset the cmos, the IME, tested different configurations and so on. If I remove all the memory sticks I actually get the memory error code. At this point I'm pretty sure that the bios got corrupted for some reason when saving these mentioned settings. Did anyone had a similar problem and got a solution for this? I repaired lot's of notebook but never had an error like this...
      The Bios installed is the a15 unlocked.

      Is it possible to unlock bios on that model? Please help me with it if somebody can.
